I am running ubuntu 10.10 and my sound does not seem to be working correctly. I have my computer dual booted with windows and it works with windows so i am pretty sure it is a driver issue. Oh and YES the volume is turned up.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Run alsamixer and make sure all the controls have their volume turned up.

Hi

Check the hardware compatibility list to see if there are any reported problems with your sound card model:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsSoundCards

It should also tell you how to get it working.
